Mercury Poisoning - The Cause of Death Assessed 6 years Posthumously

Fatal cases of mercury poisoning are reported very rarely. They are difficult to recognize because of a small number of specific symptoms. Most cases reported in the literature relate to suicidal or accidental poisoning with mercury. Cases of deliberate homicidal administration of mercury are uncommon. We present a fatal case of a woman who was hospitalized twice because of gastrointestinal symptoms which were later overlapped with signs of the central nervous system damage. After 6 years, findings indicated chronic poisoning with mercury.
